Seth R. Hancock is an Associate Attorney with the Kraut Law Group where he uses his skills and desire to obtain top results for his clients. At the Kraut Law Group, Mr. Hancock practices exclusively criminal defense. He specializes in both misdemeanor and felony crimes and works tirelessly to stop criminal charges against clients prior to prosecutors filing charges. Prior to joining the Kraut Law Group, Mr. Hancock worked as a Deputy Public Defender in the prestigious Los Angeles County Public Defender's Office, where he gained valuable experience as a trial attorney and advocate for his clients. In addition to his tenure as Deputy Public Defender, Mr. Hancock also worked as an appellate and post-conviction criminal defense attorney, first in private practice, and then as a Staff Attorney with the Project for the Innocent in Los Angeles. In that capacity, Mr. Hancock consistently obtained substantial relief for his clients. He was the first attorney in Los Angeles County to win a re-sentencing hearing pursuant to Senate Bill 1437 (Penal Code section 1170.95). He had numerous similar victories, including his work on a case that resulted in his wrongfully convicted client's conviction being vacated after she spent 11 years in state prison.

Mr. Hancock's primary goal as an attorney is to represent each and every client as zealously and as passionately as possible. He takes great pride in offering a voice to his clients and does everything that he can to mitigate the fear and stress that his clients endure as a result of facing criminal charges.

Mr. Hancock graduated with high honors from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, where he majored in English Literature and Language, with a minor in philosophy. He then attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles where he received his Juris Doctor degree with a concentration in criminal justice.

Client Reviews
Michael Kraut is outstanding! He genuinely cared about my case and instructed my mom and I throughout the entire process. He was very clear on what he needed in order to receive the best results. He kept us updated until the end. I thank him so much for getting my charges rejected. I highly recommend him to anyone with legal needs! Shaquan
I contacted Michael with concern for my personal and business reputation. He was very reassuring and confident the entire time. After about 3 weeks it was determined that no charges were being filed by any agency and I was in the clear of any investigation. One thing that is amazing is just how FAST Michael is at replying to phone calls, texts, and even emails! We are talking under 30 minutes in most cases. That is unheard of for most attorneys! Michael is incredible and not your typical run of the mill attorney. For best results hire him if you feel like you might be under investigation or could face charges. Even if you know you are innocent it is best to take care of the smoke before it becomes a fire. Brad
Michael Kraut is-hands down-the best criminal defense attorney and I can't begin to thank him for all that he did for me and my family. I reached out to him in the middle of the night and less than a couple hours later, he had gotten back to me and scheduled a meeting. He's a no-nonsense attorney who knows how to get the job done! From the second we retained him, I had peace of mind in knowing that we were in the best hands possible. If Michael Kraut couldn't get it done, I knew that it couldn't be done at all. You can't put a price tag on your freedom. He was worth every single penny. Lida
Michael Kraut is an outstanding attorney. He was extremely professional, and straightforward, yet sensitive with my case. I am confident I made the right choice by hiring Michael. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly experienced lawyer. Daniel
Michael Kraut - I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for ​my son. When I came to you I read that you used to be a district attorney but I never knew how much that meant until I watch you in court. I knew it took 3 months but the final day when I heard the judge say that all charges were dismissed it was all worth it! I will always be grateful for all that you did for us. A.N.
